About this show

Strega Nona the Musical is the fusion of three of Tomie dePaola's cherished books: Strega Nona, Strega Nona Her Story and Big Anthony and the Magic Ring. Thomas Olson and Roberta Carlson's theatrical adaptation of dePaola's Strega Nona stories was originally developed as a touring production for the renowned Children's Theatre Company in Minneapolis during their 1986-87 Season. This lively musical about a magical Italian grandmother and her mischievous apprentice boasts a score by Aron Accurso, an award-winning member of the famed BMI Lehman Engel Musical Theatre Workshop in New York. Throughout the creation of the musical as well as its rehearsal process, Tomie dePaola was involved in giving creative color and inspiration to the story's evolvement.
